I do have a few book suggestions! Begin with the Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf & It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa HartwBoth while both advocate for the eating of animal protein, they both have some minty interesting things to say about grains and legumes and the negative effects that they play on your body. Gluten intolerance is only the beginning. Remember, wheat is a grain. Gluten is a protein derived from wheat.
I am a firm believer in Paleolithic eating. I would suggest it to anyone. I am in the best health and shape of my life. I have very little inflammation or gas, I have not been sick nor felt sick in an entire year, excess body fat has fallen off. I am almost always very energetic! I stand by the Paleolithic template not only for the sake of greater physical fitness, but greater health. I am responsible in how I pick out my veggies as well as the meat that I eat. I personally believe from my reading and personal research that mankind did not feel the sting of dies ease until the Agricultural Revolution where we exchanged metabolizing fat as energy for carbohydrates in the form of grains that could be mass produced to sustain large populations.
I respect how anyone wants to eat. This, however, is my very personal conviction through experience. I have been vegetarian, vegan, raw, Maker’s, clean, and paleo. I have never been in better overall health! Start with those two books. There are also some great reads on http://www.whole9life.com. I urge you to investigate for yourself! I do hope that this has helped!
We’re only 1 week and 2 days away from the Georgia Spartan Race. My training isn’t slowing down one bit. Many of the obstacles involve carrying and being able to lift your body weight. With that in mind, I designed today’s workout to be very back intensive, mixing various weight loads for both strength and endurance. Feel free to use this template or ask questions if anything is unclear!
1 Mile (7 minute pace)
